Sex and ageing; it's complicated!

Women and men age differently, and the
interplay of factors is complex
by Anne Crawford

It's well known that women tend to live longer than men. But how does their sex affect the way women and men age?

Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) researchers were invited to review the evidence on this for a chapter in a recently published book about ageing produced by Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology.

Translational study on high-fibre diet an eye-opener for PhD science student

Paul Gill, PhD student, has published his

first paper investigating the influence of a
high-fibre diet on SCFAs in the blood.

by Anne Crawford

When PhD candidate Paul Gill began his biomedical science course at Monash University he had no idea his studies would immerse him in one of the most dynamic fields of contemporary science: the gut microbiome.

Paul’s first paper, recently published in The European Journal of Nutrition, highlighted the potential of dietary fibre therapy to manipulate the production of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) and blood plasma concentrations. SCFAs are a group of organic acids produced in the gut from the bacterial fermentation of fibre in fruit, vegetables and certain grains. They are important for gut health but then absorbed into the bloodstream.
